Oddest repurposed tool you use in your kitchen

What is the most unusual tool that you’ve found to be useful in the kitchen?

I guess mine would be my DataVac. It’s a powerful blower that folks use to clean out computers, keyboards, digital cameras, etc. instead of using canned air.

The DataVac is great for drying those intricate things that are impossible to dry with a towel. I just used it to blow dry the fiendishly complicated top of my Contigo travel mug. Worked great!

PS. Also just a quick plug for the Contigo. Despite the complicated top, it works great. Keeps coffee nice and hot. Just push the button and drink. No plastic caps or little cups to fumble with and drop on the floor or your lap. It has NEVER leaked even a drop in my shoulder bag.
